Glen Ellen Star and Fremont Diner

Napa and Sonoma are synonymous with great wine and spirits but the dining scene is a star player in
my book.  Below are a few new standouts from my recent visit, each on a slightly different spectrum.

On the casual side is the Fremont Diner, a good choice as you make your way up to your favorite winery.  Situated off Highway 12, the Fremont Diner offers visitors covered outdoor seating (allows dogs!) or the more traditional diner setting. Either selection at the prime eating hour (lunch?) will likely require a wait, especially if it's nice and sunny out.

We ordered a variety of dishes with standouts being the sausage and also the fried chicken biscuit. Other items:  shrimp grits and the deviled eggs.

Another standout located in Glen Ellen is the Glen Ellen Star.  Our selections included the mixed salad with 8 minute egg (perfectly cooked with a still runny center) margharita pizza and flat iron steak. We ended the meal with homemade ice cream (butter pecan) and a short drive home.
